    I was watching the UFC fight Friday when I noticed that one of the fighters had a DPMS logo on his shorts. I can not remember ever seeing a gun sponsor before. Are there any other sports (main stream-non shooting) with gun company sponsorships.

    ATK, the ammunition company, puts on shooting and several other events in my area for kids... they just had a shooting event for teens.

    Pretty good guys, I know a few of them.

    Tasco, probably the same reason you see very few commercials for motorcycles or paintball markers: most people seek these items out and the general public does not use them.
